The Milford Track guided walk

Departs from Queenstown, and you’ll stay in a custom-built private lodge every night. Each lodge is fully staffed, serving delicious meals and ‘refreshments’. You don’t have to bother hauling tents or food. As a result, your 40L pack (provided for you) should weigh 7kg or less.
